{My Favorite Things..... Spring Version.}

One of my friends, Brandi, did a favorite things post here and challenged others to do the same. And since I am up a 4 am, because I was awoken by sick kids I figured I had nothing better to do.....:), so here goes here are a few of my favorite things right now.......

1. This blog.... Hillary married someone that I knew growing up. She is a strong, clever, and easy going individual. I have actually never met her in person, but I sure like to read her blog.

2. MAC jest eyeshadow. I have worn the same one eyeshadow for like 10 years. I don't plan on changing anytime soon either. Why, when this has worked well for so long?

3. WII Zumba. Seriously fun and productive at the same time. Who said exercise wasn't supposed to be fun?

4. Sobe lifewater. I've been trying to drink less diet soda and this is a pretty tasty alternative. I really like the Fuji Apple Pear flavor.

5. Beaded Watch Bands. Not very original I know. Everyone wears them. There is just something about throwing one together to match your church/work outfit at the last minute that is kind of exciting to me. Plus, they are easy and if I can do it you can too!

6. Jeans with a little bling. I am not a flashy person at all, but I really like the little rhinestone accents and white stitching on these jeans. Super Cute!

7. Bath and Body Works Mentha Lip Shine. So minty fresh and shiny, a favorite of many I think.

8. Salt City Cinnamon Vanilla Candle. This candle fills the whole house making it smell sooooo good!

9. Burt's Bees lotion. Very good for sensitive, dry hands like mine. Best part is it smells good and is not greasy!

10. Bountiful Baskets. $15 a week for lots of fresh fruits and veggies. It has been fun to try new varieties each week as they put something a little different in it each week. The kids have loved having fruits/veggies to snack on all of the time. Check out their site and see if they have a location near you. You won't be sorry you did!

11. The Pioneed Woman cookbook and website. Have you ever cooked one of her recipes? They do not disappoint. This weekend we made her cinnamon rolls and they were amazing. Try her out if you haven't.
12. Shrugs. I love to layer and these are so much fun!
13. Skype. Josh's parents are in New Zealand serving a mission and it has been so nice for the kids to get to talk to them so frequently. Especially since you can also see them at the same time. Plus, it's free. How great is that!

OK, so here is the fun part. You could win a prize and who doesn't like winning prizes?

My favorite is the zumba for the wii and the shrugs! I have been to a couple of Zumba classes but it would be so much easier to just do it at home....and less embarrassing!

I linked to your post and made my own list!
